  1. Women's Day is just round the corner, and I'm sure all you men out there are set to woo your lady love with extravagant candlelight dinners and expensive wines and larger-than-life bouquet of flowers, just to show your affection for her. But wake up, that's not what she wants. You don't need to celebrate a grandiose Women's Day date to express your love, however, you don't need to be a scrooge either. Why not look for simple and affordable ways to show your appreciation for her and celebrate in a way that doesn't break the bank? Here are some romantic ideas you can do on Women's Day, but on a budget: 1. Begin Her Day With Gifts Unsplash Starting the day itself with exchanging gifts is the best way to go. If your budget isn't too high, DIY the f*** out of it. Unlike popular opinion, your partner will certainly observe the amount of effort you've put in the gift rather than the amount of money you have spent. Think handmade jewellery. You can customize a piece to your partner's tastes by making it yourself. Craft stores carry beads in every shape, colour and style, along with the supplies to fashion them into necklaces, earrings, and brooches, and the Internet is flooded with videos and articles on DIY-jewellery. 2. Set Up A Picnic In Your Living Room Unsplash We are using the word 'picnic' here quite loosely. Do the regular picnic setting – lay down a blanket on your living room rug and you chitchat with your bae about nothing in particular. Turn off the lights and fire up some scented candles. Regular candles will also do. Some light music in the background will be perfection given the little cosy nest you've created in your living room. 3. Ditch The Fancy Restaurant Taco Bell Don't bother with fancy three-course meals and expensive wines to express your love. This Women's Day, there is a sweet surprise for women awaiting in all Taco Bell stores. Show her what a star she is to you, without burning a big hole in your pocket with Taco Bell's new Chickstar wrap. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'd know about this already. But in case you don't, fret not! It is basically a star-shaped wrap tossed with crispy chicken nachos, veggies and signature sauces of Taco Bell- Creamy Habanero and Nacho Cheese Sauce. "Yum in your tum?" Actually, we will leave the being cheesy with your girlfriend part to you. And oh, in case, either of you is vegetarian, there's a paneer version available as well. And if you're wondering how expensive this one-of-a-kind treat is, it is NOT. It will cost you ONLY Rs. 149 for the non-vegetarian wrap and Rs. 129 for the vegetarian wrap! So, rush over to your nearest stores today! 4. Plan A Scavenger Hunt And Go Down Memory Lane Unsplash Plan a scavenger hunt for her with a selection of love notes and sneak them around the house and elsewhere- her coat pockets, lunch box, her purse, etc. so she will find them during the course of the day. At the end of the hunt, you get to find old photographs and videos and watch them together and cuddle. You get the drift, don't you? 5. Gift Her A Pet! Unsplash If your loved one nurtures a soft spot for animals, why not give her a pet to remind her of you, even when you're out of town? And now if you're thinking how can this option be cheap... well, ADOPT! You get to kill two birds with one stone on Women's Day this way. Not only will your girlfriend be absolutely happy to have it, but you'll also give a home to a lovely dog, cat, hell, maybe even a lizard! The choice is yours! Hope this guide works for you the way it has for us. Let us know.

  3. If you're into a day like Valentine's day, February 14 can mean a lot of pressure in deciding quirky date ideas with boo. Move aside movie dates or eating at a fancy restaurant, you obviously need something above de rigueur routine. If you prefer staying at home instead of going out, you should definitely read on. Staying at home does not have to mean no effort for your date; it only means if you plan smartly you can surprise your boo with these offbeat ideas. These are super budget-friendly also. 1. Trying Out Face Sheet Masks Together © Instagram Face Sheet masks come in different fruit-based flavours. The best part of these masks is that it literally takes no effort in taking on and off. It's like a mask that you would otherwise wear to a Halloween party if you wanted to dress like a mummy, except this one is wet and full of good stuff for you and your boo's face. Try them out together and poke fun at each other, click quirky pictures and also get glowing faces by the end of it. 2. Scented Moisturizer Massage Sesh © Getty Images There is something about a scented moisturizer that makes the whole hydrating your skin with a cream a lot more fun. Make it a date, and you would want to add it to your routine. Play with berry-based moisturizers and use it to lightly massage your partner. Start with the back and uncover the rest of the body and watch her return the favour for you. 3. Charcoal Masks And Netflix Binging © Getty Images For the uninitiated, charcoal masks help clear out blackheads and other impurities on the skin. You can apply one, then rest for twenty minutes and remove it. However, this mundane activity can be turned into a date if you do it together and watch a great show in the waiting period and then take it off together. Fun! 4. The Lipstick-Mapping Game © Getty Images We're not asking you to wear it out in the open. A lipstick can be used to scribble on each other's face for fun or could be used for an entirely different scheme of things. Think treasure hunts, words, spots as markers of where you want to touch or be touched--all drawn with a stroke of the rouge stick. The options are endless. 5. Mani-Pedi Sessions © Getty Iamges Another fun date option is going for a manicure and pedicure session together and chilling together whilst both of you get cleaned up. It's a break from routine dates and certainly is a good option to consider.

  5. College life is fun-time. You have parties to go to, dates, you take small trips to the beaches nearby or have pool parties with your friends. More than all of that, you obviously want to look good and show off a great physique. You join a gym and the trainer tells you the importance of eating clean and taking a bunch of supplements. This gets you nowhere as either what is recommended to you does not work or you are too short on cash to get those things. Guess what? You need none of those. © Pixabay Being a hotel management graduate and having lived my entire school life and half of my college life in a hostel, I know the struggle. The reason was I didn't have the right knowledge and I didn't know who to trust in this field. The only thing I knew was to go to a gym and lift weights but only lifting weights don't pack on muscle. So what else do you need to pack on muscle? FOOD! This is where your diet plays a role. Based on my experience, this article would help to shape your body and build muscle on a budget. © YouTube To begin with, you need two things: 1) Planning 2) Download a calorie counter app. Planning Plan your monthly budget and pick your foods accordingly. Split your meals according to your convenience. If you want to gain muscle, then I would suggest 3 to 5 meals per day. Download A Calorie Counter App Download a calorie counter app from the app store and give your details to set your calories to gain muscle. Once you get a target recommendations then plug in the below food items. A few basics: 1 gm of protein= 4 kcal 1gm of carbohydrates= 4kcal 1gm of fats= 9kcal Sample diet (2500-3000 calories per day) Meal 1: Breakfast 4 Slices of bread 1 whole egg 2 egg whites 1 teaspoon butter Macros: Carbs: 52g, Protein- 22g, fats- 15g, Total Calories- 431 Meal 2: Snacks 2 medium sized banana 1 serving of peanuts Macros: Carbs: 55g, Protein- 8g, Fats- 10g, Total Calories- 342 Meal 3: Lunch 1 Chicken thali ( 2 rotis, one cup rice, 2-3 pieces of chicken, 1 cup curd, salad) or 1 Veg Thali ( 2 rotis, 1 cup rice, 1 cup of dal, 1 cup of veggies, 1 cup curd, salad) Macros: (chicken Thali): Carbs: 90g, Protein- 40g, Fats- 20g, Total Calories- 700 Macros: (Veg Thali): Carbs: 155g, Protein- 30g, Fats- 20g, Total Calories- 920 Meal 4: Pre- workout 1 medium-sized banana 2 slices of bread 1 tablespoon peanut butter Macros: Carbs: 50g, Protein- 15g, Fats- 13g, Total Calories- 377 Meal 5: After workout 6 egg whites Macros: Carbs: 0g, Protein- 20g, Fats- 0, Total Calories- 80 Meal 6: Dinner 1 serving of chicken meat 1 serving of veggies 1 bowl of rice and dal 1 tbsp oil Macros: Carbs: 62g, Protein- 35g, Fats- 25g, Calories- 613 P.S- This is just a sample plan and you can adjust it according to your taste and preference. Always remember, muscle gain comes from lifting weights and nutrition augments it. To grow muscle, it takes time. So, I suggest you train progressively every week, focus more on multi-joint movements than single joints. Sleep 6-8 hours daily and don't stress if things aren't going according to your plan. Start doing this to build muscle. Author bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  6. If you ever go to a supplement store with the goal of buying every 'muscle building' supplement in there, you would end up spending all of the monthly salary or pocket money you have. However, even after spending so much money, you would not have bought even 20% of those 'muscle building' supplements. The supplement industry markets a lot of the supplements as potent muscle builders and wants to sell you useless stuff with the false premise of saying it will help you build muscle. As a matter of fact, less than 5% of those supplements contribute towards your muscle building goals. Here's a list of muscle building supplements that actually work and how you can fit them into a budget of Rs. 100 per day or even less: 1. Whey Protein © Thinkstock Images Protein is the most important macronutrient. In a muscle building phase, you are trying to build new muscle protein. To synthesize and build new muscle protein, you need to consume an adequate amount of protein on a daily basis. The general recommendation being 1 gram per pound of body weight. Whey Protein is one of the most convenient ways to get in this target protein intake for the day. The convenience aspect of this supplement makes it very desirable and one of the most sold supplements in the fitness industry. A good brand whey protein would cost you around 70 to 75 rupees per serving. 2. Caffeine © Thinkstock Images You would see every self-proclaimed gym freak praising caffeine as the most wonderful discovery on the planet Earth. It truly is. Caffeine is a stimulant that activates the central nervous system. With regards to your workout performance, it enhances your power output, workout volume, and suppresses fatigue. A study in 2012 had 16 Rugby players split into two groups. One group was given 4 mg/kg caffeine and the other was given a placebo. They were further split into two sub-groups: A. Sleep Deprived B. Well slept Caffeine supplementation helped the sleep-deprived group of players perform just as well as the well-slept group. The well slept group performed slightly better when they supplemented with caffeine. [1] If your goal is maximum performance, caffeine supplementation in the range of 3 - 6 mg/kg would work best pre-workout. If you want the real deal, I would suggest supplementing with a caffeine pill. A 200 mg pill would not cost you more than 10 bucks. 3. Creatine Monohydrate © Thinkstock Images Creatine is an amino acid that is typically found in food such as fish and meat. It is one of the most researched supplements with around hundreds of studies supporting its benefits in increasing strength and power. It is also a very safe supplement. A lot of people think that consuming creatine will make them appear puffy but creatine draws water into your muscle and not anywhere else. All creatine would do, is to make you look more jacked. Creatine is sold in a lot of variety and compounds as well, but there is again no data that shows any other form of creatine as effective or better than creatine monohydrate. Studies also show that there were no health risks associated with around 21 months of daily creatine supplementation proving its safety. So you do not really need to go off or stop supplementation. If you want to supplement with creatine, go for monohydrate and consume 5 grams of it per day. The timing does not matter that much. A 5-gram creatine monohydrate would cost you no more than 10 bucks. That concludes the budget-friendly muscle building stack and in a summary, the supplements you would want and their prices: 1. Whey Protein - Rs. 70 per serving 2. Caffeine - Rs. 10 per serving 3. Creatine Monohydrate - Rs. 10 per serving Total - Rs. 90 per day. The monthly investment would be half the cost of a new and improved muscle building pill on the market that does not do anything. References: 1. Cook et al.
